Laser Research Optics Sapphire Windows for Fiber Laser Optics Are Scratch-Resistant

PROVIDENCE, RI--(Marketwired - Feb 4, 2014) - Laser Research Optics has introduced a new series of protective sapphire windows for 1 micron optics that offer superior durability to zinc-sulfide and fused silica lenses.

Laser Research Fiber Laser Sapphire Windows feature Moh 9 hardness, which is second only to diamond, making them more durable and scratch-resistant than zinc-sulfide and fused silica windows. A longer lasting replacement for debris shields and reducing the number of lens changes, these sapphire windows are capable of withstanding steel splatter, flash, and debris.

Available in 1" to 2" sizes, Laser Research Fiber Laser Windows made from Sapphire have a 10-5 scratch-dig finish, 1/4 wave flatness, A/R coatings on both sides, and provide greater than 99.5% transmission @ 1.07 microns, with greater than 90% @ 650-670 nm. Fused silica UV grade windows coated on one or two sides are also offered.

Laser Research Fiber Laser Sapphire Windows are priced according to size and quantity. Introductory price quotations are available upon request.
